For everyone who feels bad about being alone on Valentine’s Day! Michael Buble:


From my favorite romantic comedy, Johnny Cammarari (Nicholas Cage) to Loretta Castorini (Cher) in one of the best romantic declarations ever:

Loretta, I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn’t know this either — but love don’t make things nice. It ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess.

I mean, that the storybooks are bullshit! Now I want you to come upstairs with me and get in my bed.
